This probably sounds completely stupid. So, forgive me. I know absolutely nothing about college or what I'm doing, but I know what I want. Therefore, if necessary, please feel free to talk to me like I was an ignorant child (in simple terms), but please do not be condescending. I would get on the right track. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I have two main questions: How I can get financial aid for this? And how I can get the required credits? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus As background, I have been waiting to college starting since he was a junior in high school. I asked my councilor if I start applying for scholarships and she laughed and said no. (Well, looks like it should be, because once I had beaten last year I had none, and once I graduated, I could be well despite an average of 3.6.) So I am in a loss. I applied for many scholarships. I did not even get any response. My teachers told me that probably was not getting any because many others were. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus So, I graduated with no scholarship ready. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus So, once I graduated, I realized I had to get some money saved. I wanted a job but could not find one for almost a year. Now, two years after graduation I feel I have to start working on my original plans or never will. I do not want to go to a normal school, and after seeing my options, I decided on the University of Phoenix, get an online degree. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Finally, I would like to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in English degree. It has under its prerequisites I need a few classes to get there. I know I need an associates degree. But, of the two associates degrees set to get a bachelor's degree, the classes are not the same as the prerequisites for licensure. I'm confused. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus How I can get the necessary "prerequisite" degree credits if they are in degrees of partners in the list? Do I have to be ordered separately as optional? That's a lot of electives! Or am I just missing something? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Also: financial aid. I do not do enough to get into college. I'll have to borrow money and seek federal funding, I guess. My bank offers loans, but I'd rather do something that does not require me to pay an arm and a leg for the rest of my life. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus So I'm back to the scholarships. Where I can get some? I already tried FastWeb, but have so far come to nothing. And my school was not very helpful with offering options. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Anything would help. Where I can get scholarships, loans and grants? People tell me that Obama has changed a lot in schools and funding, but do not really know about that. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Help, please! I feel ignorant and stupid for asking these questions, but I'm at a loss. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus To reiterate: MedlinePlus MedlinePlus 1) How I can get the credits? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus 2) How I can get financial aid? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Any help would be appreciated and would help me a lot. The website of the university seems rather vague and difficult to navigate, in my mind ... but maybe I'm missing something. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Anyone?
